State Land Board – November 2000 – Colorado Central Magazine
The lawsuit to prevent the exchange of the Little Cochetopa School Section will continue.
The issue then will be a permanent injunction forbidding the Colorado State Land Board from making a land trade with Thomas and Majorie Smith of Kansas City.
The Smiths own a 3,080-acre ranch near La Jara Reservoir in Conejos County, and wanted to trade it for 640 acres of state land along Little Cochetopa Creek on County Road 210 in Chaffee County.
